Beautiful!

We enjoyed our 2 nights here on the lake. The campground is literally on a mountain in the lake. Tent sites right on the lake and so are some RV spots. Warning. Stay away from Loop C around sites 35-37. They are literally right on top of each other. We luckily had a friend who was staying over on site 28 and we parked with him. Loved it there! Some sites are off camber due to the mountain side. Bath house where we were staying was the nicer of the ones. Older but clean. Can’t wait to come back in the summer!

Lots of “locals”

Finally stopped by to check out this CG. Actually a lot bigger then I had expected. The grounds were clean and looked nice. That being said, there are a lot of people who call this home. They have pay monthly spots but it looked like so many more are living there. The sites are really close. A gentleman did tell us they do have a few spots opened from time to time. The river and sand bar are literally right behind the CG. Would like to try and camp here if they ever had an opening for a somewhat “good” spot. Has swimming pool, tennis court and a basketball goal. Boat ramp and day use spot as well.

Nice!

Very nice state park for its size. Ice storm has had its way here but they are cleaning up nicely. Bath houses stayed super clean all weekend. Park hosts were very nice. Walking trails were very clean around lake with TentRR glamping being added. 4 lake front premium spots. We were kicking enough to have one. Piers are super nice. Place was packed this weekend but still very nice and quiet at night.

Old but good

Grew up coming here for the summer to fish, swim, ski and use the water park. It is an older park but with that being said it has many years left of good camping. The bathrooms are always clean. Many things were closed when we went due to covid but are normally up and running. Love the area. The trails are an addition to the park. We love to get out and walk the woods. The old campground is where we like to stay. Mostly quiet and this is the side with the primitive tent camping. This side also has a good bit of shaded spots that are on the water.

Peaceful

Always packed with hikers but nonetheless we always have enough space and a good time. The downfall to this park is the camper pads. There are a few that are perfect. Most of them once you step out of your camper has a huge drop off. Just remember to park as close to the hookup side as possible. Clean bathrooms and nice hosts when we go. Love the trails. The Bear Creek is peaceful to sit beside. Hoping to kayak here this summer. Can’t wait to go back.

Peaceful, nice and clean

Had been wanting to try this campground out for a year. We decided last minute to make the trip this weekend. Super nice park host! Bathrooms were A+++ clean! No showers due to covid. Loved that almost all spot were right at the water edge. Literally. All types of birds to watch. Squirrels too. The walking path is about a quarter mile down to a spot where people fish. Many people boating and fishing. Can’t wait to come back but some sites had already been booked for next week. Seems like this is a very popular place. I do see why!

Nice CG in the woods

Stayed here last year for New Years. Came to ride the lake bottom in our SXS. Campground was very clean. Bathhouse was clean. Park host at the time were pretty nice. Just fill out all of your paper work when you put it on the pole and they won’t bother you. Also if you are wanting to ATV ride, the do not allow you to have them off of the trailer in the park. Overall a fun weekend. Was going to go back once the lake fills up this summer.

Great as always

Have camped here for years and it is always a very well kept campground. Pads are all level, water and some sewer hook ups are available. Bathrooms are always cleaned regularly. Due to covid they have a limit and you now have to book online at recreation.gov, they do not take cash or card at the gate.

We got to enjoy the park and try out our new Overlanding setup. The river is always so peaceful even when the barges are moving all night.
